The following is a personality profile of James Joyce based on his work.
James Joyce is unconventional.
He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is empathetic as well: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. But, James Joyce is also proud: he holds himself in high regard, satisfied with who he is.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for organization.
